Entry level high performance bicycle neck brace from the biomedical engineers and medical staff of the Leattëå research lab. The 4.5 is the Leattëå entry level commitment to safety.
The core of what makes our neck braces work is the function of directing the crash forces from your helmet to the body and bypassing the neck - Alternative Load Path Technology - ALPTëå. For the ALPTëå to work at its best, optimal neck braces to body fit is key. The adjustability built into all Leattëå neck braces is not just for comfort, but to ensure a correct fit that assists in optimizing ALPT effectiveness. To further optimize the fit, the comfortable CoreFlex rear thoracic strut has an exclusive feature that allows it to be adjusted in 4 angles.
The semi-rigid chassis is adjustable enough to fit most riders_Ñé body shape while the structure remains very rigid to help transmit energy during an impact. Remember that a rigid construction is key for reducing neck forces. A soft or flexing neck brace would drastically reduce the function or even increase neck force over time. Multiple engineered fracture points and crumple zones will bend or break away at pre-determined stress levels to help contribute to a riders_Ñé safety.
